#1 - Micro-Voices Concept

Updated: Mar 20, 2023

#Micro-voices seem to be ellusive but are valuable concepts for understanding our many selves

We are meant to be loving, happy, and fully involved in the vast experiences constantly coming to us. But somehow that scenario gets sidetracked in childhood and most of us experience fears, traumas, and self-doubt about our place in this world.

This is going to be a different take on how our personalities develop.

Each one of us is filled with a complex set of unique tools our Inner Child creates for surviving its childhood that are overlaid with emotional energies that shape how we interact with our environment.

When we are born, we become immersed in learning from others the values and behaviors needed for interacting with other people. Our teachers often have not resolved their own life traumas and are reflecting to us their fears, their views they adopted from others before them, and their understanding about what it means to nurture a child.

Not only are we learning how to move, talk, and think using our core tools, but we also must learn how to survive and make sense of the actions and behaviors used by everyone we encounter. And we are virtually helpless to control our earliest circumstances. We begin learning our functioning skills, referred to in this blog as our pure micro-voices. These skills become our tools allowing us to use our bodies as we encounter the physically painful experiences we learn through trial-and-error practice as we fall, bump into objects, poke ourselves in the eye, discover hard spoons and strange toys.

These are the experiences that teach us our motor and thinking skills and with enough practice we become proficient at walking, climbing, running, throwing, and all the hyperactive joys we become capable of doing. This is the fundamental part of our being that we can learn to control allowing us to analyze and negotiate new experiences.

But we also must enter the very complicated world of human interactions filled with emotions, expectations, and values. Our pure physical-skills-micro-voices that allow us to walk and throw are ill-prepared to handle the emotions of anger coming from others, or the privation from not being held and nurtured nearly enough, or the lack of attention we feel when we want food or a dry diaper. So many confusing interactions with others who are also confused about their own needs.

We begin to develop fears that our world in not safe. As we endure prolonged fearful experiences, we begin developing new survival skills. Now we must defend ourselves from unseen forces that are often out of our control. It seems our Inner Child tasks our pure micro-voices with protecting it from these unsafe experiences.

These are the fear energies that we internalize creating a variety of micro-voice personalities tuned to helping us survive the perceived threats. Our pure unadulterated physical life-skill-micro-voices begin developing responses to the emotional energies being experiences. This distorts our innocence of youthful wonder about the world as our pure micro-voices now have to provide emotional protections for our Inner Child. These physical abilities and emotional perceptions become the basis for a wide range of micro-personalities, each one playing an important role in our survival needs. - kc

The hormonal response to fear we have springs from survival instincts. With the padding that the modern world provides, our instinctual response to emotional damage in our childhood can have extreme impacts on our day to day life far into the future. So can the practices of rearing a child in a non-traumatizing way.

This blog has been a work of love developed over the past ten years and finally brought to life through the dedicated tech help by Soren, who was originally my physical therapist and now is a time-limited partner who managers two other martial arts training centers. Being an old gay guy I struggle to function well in the blog-a-sphere so this presentation will be a bit rough at first. Feel free to lend your ideas.


Since my teen years I have believed that through appropriate touch we can heal ourselves. But the journey to better understand my own dynamics and gain enough awareness to be able to write about our complex humanness only coalesced after I had an opportunity to be in prison. There I had time to do deep self-examinations about why I was who I am and how I could translate that into helping others make discoveries for themselves. I do not claim to be a professional therapist or counselor.


But I do believe there are others in this world who might benefit from these ideas presented in this blog platform. Having grown to the point of releasing nearly all of my fears and can now truly say that I love every moment and feel in partnership with my soul, I feel that others may benefit from my travels. Being non-judgmental I welcome your insights, whatever they may be, and I will strive to help everyone find greater peace in their lives. and Hoshow, LLC.


We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
